Covering odd shaped windows in Salt Lake City, Utah (1 of 2)

Every house has at least one of these design obstacles...specialty shaped windows and how to cover them. I love the look and architectural detail that uniquely shaped windows add to a home, but they can be a challenge to cover. Hunter Douglas probably has the best selection of specialty shaped options, and they are constantly striving to improve them and add more options all the time. I was at a customers home the other day that had some angle top windows and he said he had been checking around for quite some time, and Hunter Douglas was the only manufacturer that had a product that would work on his windows. There is a reason why Hunter Douglas has quite a name for themselves.

Here are some examples of specialty shaped windows that Hunter Douglas manufactures a product for. I will break it down into 2 posts. If you have any of these issues in your home that you want to find a solution for, give us a call and we would be happy to go over your options with you.


Angles:




If you live in a modern home, you probably have an angled window or two. They're popular in tow-story spaces, where they complement the styling and allow natural light into the room. Many Hunter Douglas window fashions can give you optimal control of that light and maximum energy efficiency.

Trapezoids:



If you have this window shape in your home, you're aware of how challenging it is to find a window fashion for it-and how necessary. Hunter Douglas offers more than a dozen different window fashion styles to cover your trapezoidal-shaped windows, including some of our most popular sheers, shades, honeycombs and blinds.

Arches:



Following the lines of classic architecture, arched windows add elegance to any room, but can also offer a particular set of challenges when it comes to privacy and light control. Hunter Douglas offers more than a dozen different window fashions for covering arched windows. The Easyview® Arch from Duette® honeycomb shades allows you to raise and lower the shade for maximum light control while the revolutionary design of our Bridgeway® specialty shapes provides options for covering any shaped arch.

Circles, ovals:




When it comes to covering uniquely shaped windows, we like to say we're very well rounded at Hunter Douglas. That's literally true when it comes to covering circular and oval shaped window fashions. Hunter Douglas offers many different window fashions for covering circular and oval windows including shutters, blinds and the versatile Bridgeway™ specialty shapes collection.

Bay Windows:




Bay windows beautifully define spaces and bring more natural light into your home. You'll find them in children's rooms, kitchens and even bathrooms. Virtually every Hunter Douglas window fashion offers a solution for covering your bay window.

Sliding Glass Doors:




While virtually any Hunter Douglas window fashion can be outfitted for sliding glass doors, select products are ideally suited for them. Luminette® Privacy sheers, Skyline® Gliding Window Panels, Duette® and Applause® honeycomb shades with Vertiglide™ and our vertical blinds, for example, traverse horizontally, making them easier to operate in this type of application. Regardless of which product you choose, you'll enjoy a beautiful look and greater lighting control & energy efficiency.
